Marc Vyvyan-Jones and Lucy Sloan collaborate closely in all their work. Marc's strength is drawing - but his love of word-play and dreadful puns make him a fine headline writer. Lucy's strength is words - but her experience in page design and picture editing is invaluable in Marc's creative process as he turns ideas into illustrations. Marc often uses Lucy's poems and stories when he visits schools on Illustrator Days. Marc and Lucy are married, and love working together (most of the time!).
